History: 

Thomas Bell & Co ~ Sheffield England 

There is very very little information available about this razor company.

The largest market for Sheffield cutlers in the early nineteenth century was America. In 1812 6,000 people out of the working population of 18,000 were making cutlery for the American market, and it was reported a third of all manufactured goods were for export to America.

After 1840 demand increased and Sheffield dominated the market in the US. It was not until the start of the American Civil War in 1861 and the raising of American trade tariffs that Sheffield’s export trade began to decrease. American cutlers fully embraced mechanisation and mass production, which allowed them to produce cheaper goods. Competition from European cutlery centres, such as Solingen in Germany, also affected Sheffield’s trade.
